Description of problem:
tripwire fails during tripwire --check with a:
### Error: A bad index was encountered in file.
somewhere in the middle of checking.
I have done a clean install of tripwire and generated new database (--init) with
no error but I still get this when I go to check.
Any ideas what is causing this?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install tripwire
3. tripwire --init
4. tripwire --check
Actual Results: Se above.

This seems to happen across all redhat distros, not just 7.3. I have also swapped out hard drives
with no difference. Right now, I suspect something in the motherboard/cpu combo or a (very)
elusive bug in tripwire.
Linux installs and seems to run fine. This is the only odd behavior that I have seen. FYI, the
motherboard is a SOYO K7VMP with an Athlon XP2500 cpu. Anyone else have experience with this
Oops. I forgot to mention that this happens on a virgin 7.3 install as well as a virgin + updates
The error means that Tripwire's input serializer stumbled upon a fatal
data inconsistency. I've not seen anyone with such an error before,
and I doubt it is a general issue with Tripwire.
Closing bug, since tripwire hasn't been shipped for so long, only in Legacy
